Get a taste of Dakar ac­tion with­out nearly dy­ing?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

The Dakar Rally is pretty un­known in the USA, so we set up the Taste of Dakar event in Ne­vada – a self­guided tour through some of the most in­tense routes on earth to give rid­ers a flavour of what they’re miss­ing. Rid­ers come from all over the world and jump on one of our all-in­clu­sive, three-day self-guided tours in Death Val­ley − the low­est, dri­est and hottest place in North Amer­ica.

Every­one gets into groups of four to seven rid­ers, we load them up with GPS routes and then it’s up to the rid­ers to nav­i­gate their way through one of our epic courses. There’s a train­ing school the day be­fore with Dakar master Jimmy Lewis, which is open to all ex­pe­ri­ence lev­els. It’s a rugged ex­pe­ri­ence through the desert and moun­tains of Ne­vada. It’ll cost you around £100 a day to rent a BMW R1200GS (less for a smaller bike). It’s £200 for the event, which in­cludes camp­ing, GPS routes for all dif­fi­culty lev­els, meals, beers, drinks and rid­ing in­struc­tion. And it’s around £700 for a round-trip flight from the UK.
